Abstract

This pamphlet recounts Georgeanna Woolsey's experiences as she and a companion travelled from Baltimore to Gettysburg to assist in caring for the soldiers from both armies and help transport the wounded away from the battlefield to hospitals in July of 1863, while working with the United States Sanitary Commission. The pamphlet was originally published privately and then reprinted"for a more general circulation among the friends and contributors to the Sanitary Commission, in the belief that it cannot fail to stimulate and encourage them in their work."
